Updated on January 18, 2009

It seems that Time Warner Cable in an effort to promote its Hi-def and RoadRunner services it has announced that expanded a few extra channels such HD Olympic Soccer and Basketball, plus all the Olympic coverage in Hi_def for the duration of the games for all subscribers to Time Warner Cable. Afterwards everything will go back to normal.

The expanded coverage (about 3600 hours according Time Warner) will also include the more obscure events like Archery, Steeplechasing, Handball, Trampoline, Race walking, Shooting and others that normally is not broadcasted. On American TV.

What's a lot of fun about these broadcasts are the obscure sports, I am kinda of partial to handball and Shooting (where the women and men are on equal footing).

What's your favorite? I would love to hear any comments!
